X3 – Haçienda 30 Classics @ Sankeys, Manchester
Closing off the Manchester run of dates for “Haçienda 30 XXX”, “X3” on Monday 4 June brings together three of The Haçienda’s most famous club nights with a sensational line up of the DJs who made their mark at these very famous events.
Taking the Sankeys mainfloor with a recreation of his 1992 to 1996 Saturday night residency, Haçienda DJing mainstray Graeme Park is joined by Reese himself, Inner City’s Kevin Saunderson, his long term DJ resident partner, Tom Wainwright and the ever irrepressible Allister Whitehead.
Taking Sankey’s Spektrum room upstairs, Jon Dasilva returns to raise the temperature, revisiting the “Hot” night from the heady days of 88 with a selection of the finest early acid which is to be complimented on the night with sets from rave survivors, 808 State DJs, who bring along “The North At Its Heights” collaborator, MC Tunes and FAC51’s Peter Hook.
The third room on Monday 4 June is taken by The Haçienda’s original indie crossover night, Temperance Club, which is helmed by DJ and commentator Dave Haslam alongside original Temperance resident Dave Booth, and Paper Recordings / Afficianado’s very own Justin Boardman.
